AmbiGaming Update

Hi guys,

As some of you may know, I wrote a post recently about how my thesis had won and I was stepping back a bit. Unfortunately that hasn’t changed, but I have a little better idea of how things are going to look for the short-term future, moving forward.

The Video Game Challenge will continue, as I did a bunch of those and scheduled them, so they’ll keep going up every week.

I’ve decided to throw caution to the winds and try to keep pushing through with the Wednesday feature articles, mostly because I’m so happy AmbiGaming has now had two months in a row with well over 1,000 views and I know how sad I’ll be to see those numbers go down when I’m not in the throes of academia anymore. What can I say? I was inspired by the fantastic and optimistic interview conducted by The Well-Red Mage. The plan is to keep them coming, of course, but whether I will have time remains to be seen. So if I disappear for a few weeks, I’m still sitting behind my computer, but I’m writing about music and emotion regulation instead of video games.

And finally, and perhaps most disappointingly (to me), I will be suspending the Let’s Plays until an undetermined time. With my current living situation, there isn’t a lot of “quiet” around here until very late at night. I mentioned maybe having time during the day where, you know, I could record, and… well I didn’t expect it to be met with enthusiasm, but it wasn’t met with any support either. So as much as I love you guys and have been having fun putting the videos together, I really don’t want to keep recording at 2:00am like I’ve been doing. I have a few more Andromeda videos that will go up, and then I will be bowing out of YouTube, at least until my living situation changes… I’ll reassess at that time. And after all that work, too… But I can say I posted videos on YouTube, and that’s what’s important! (I’ll still post here about my set-up at some point, since I did promise to do that that a while ago!)

So… March came in like an N7 operative and went out like a nerdy communication specialist, but that means… erm… spring is coming? I don’t know where I was expecting that analogy to go. If you can think of a better way to end it, let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by (and for understanding), and I’ll see you soon!

  1. Congrats on achieving 1000 views per month! 🎉🎉🎊🎊
    Sad to see you have to stop LPing for now, funnily enough I’m in the same boat. Because of life circumstances I stopped being alone during the day, so now I can’t LP like I did and my motivation is shot. But we can always pick it back up at a later time! 🔥🔥
    Good luck!

  2. It’s nothing more than settling down on a new planet, hit the vault, sustain 100% viability, and your priorities will fall where they may.

      1. Well there is the toxic air, then robots and aliens that try to kill you, and a powerful death wave after finally activating a vault. But that’s life for you, always something to deal with on your path to achievement. It’s not how you choose to deal with it, it’s the results that matter.

  3. Take all the time you need. We’ll still be here for you. 🙂 Huge congrats on getting so many views per month! That’s so inspiring! And I wish you the best of luck with your thesis and everything you have to get done! And ah, I’m sad but understanding about your YouTube situation. I will still watch what you’ve got now that I’m officially a subscriber. And hopefully that will tide me over until your next video. 🙂 Again, hope you can get through everything, and know that we support you here.

    1. Thanks, Mr. Panda! I know, I’m so upset about the timing, too, since I’ve gotten a few new subscribers in the last week or so. I have a few more Andromeda videos to go up, but then we’ll have to wait and see how things go. I appreciate your continued support! 🙂 It really does mean a lot!!

  4. Wow! That’s an amazing view per month achievement! Congrats! I’m glad the internet is paying attention to your wisdom 🙂

    Sorry you have to step away from the LPs for a bit. I know you spent a lot of time getting set up too. Life can be annoying sometimes… Hopefully I’ll be able to watch your LPs soon though. No matter what you decide to do, I’ll always enjoy reading your articles (that don’t have spoilers for Mass Effect or DA, haha) and I can’t wait to learn more from you! I wish you all the best with everything.

    1. Thank you so much! I can’t tell you how meaningful it is to see your kind and supportive comment 🙂 And I’ll try to keep my spoilers to a minimum from now on haha. Thank you! I’m looking forward to seeing the next opportunity door that opens now that I have had to close a window, as it were.

  5. Good luck with your thesis. If there’s something that had to take you away from WP, that is definitely a big something. I am sorry about your YT videos though, sorry you didn’t receive the support you needed to record during the day. That’s wildly unfair, and I understand your dilemma with it. I’ll have to plan around another person, too, because of where I want to record (in the living room, though we only have a two room apartment so wherever I go, I’ll need quiet). I’ll be overjoyed to read whatever you manage to post on here, and I should be able to watch the LP videos you have up so that at least you’ll have some nice comments when you do get back 🙂

    Wishing you the best of luck again!

    1. Thank you so much. I really appreciate your continued support. Everyone has been so nice, and I can’t tell you (or anyone here) how much that means to me. So thank you again.

      Yes, I was disappointed about the videos, as well, but maybe once I’m not so crazy with thesis I’l be able to record at 2:00am again, who knows? (haha) I hope you can figure out your recording situation! That was definitely a detail that I didn’t consider when starting out!

      And thanks, I’d love to see your comments when I can be on the interwebs consistently again!
